An Interview with Kids' View Reporter Dakarione
Q. How old are you?
12. I'm in 6th grade, in Middle School.
Q. What are your favorite
Number 1, writing, because you can write anything you want.
Number two, drums, in band, because you can make all the noise
And number 3, choir. I'm a tenor but sometimes an alto.
Q. What gardening experience do you
I've been gardening since I was ten. Miss June, our old
neighbor, I helped in her garden. She was about 90.
Below, right: Dakarione says what
I like about gardens is that you can grow things and eat the
peaches off of it.
Q. We've been asking kids who know the computer game
Plants vs. Zombies for silly plant stories. Do you know that
Yes! I played that game!
Right: When Dakarione dropped by to add some
color to his current drawings, he and
D'licia traded zombie-plant ideas.
Q. Do you have any plant and zombie stories to tell
Below, right: Maybe the exhibitors
the 4H Oakland County Fair had also
played the Plants Vs. Zombies game!
One day there was a man named the meanest and scariest man ever.
His name was Zombie Man.
I am named Lightning McQueen and I have zombies in my classroom.
They are very bad. They tried to eat our class flower, Antonio.
Antonio is a hyacinth that smells like a skunk and I hoped the
zombies would eat it.
Unfortunately, the zombies tried to eat my brain and they ate my
teacher's brain because she kept bugging with us in 2nd hour.
One day I saw the zombie outside trying to eat plants and people
gardening. I said, "People look, people look, there are zombies
trying to eat your plants!"
They said, "Who cares, they can eat these plants. I don't care
about these plants."
Then the zombie tried to eat my friend's brain and my friend
said, "I quit, I quit!"
I said, "Go away or I will have to take you to the game called
Plants vs. Zombies and then you will get killed, you zombie. If you
don't leave my family and friends alone or I will take you
